Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: MOOCs

MOOCs. If I had to list an ed-tech trend that was the most discussed, this is surely it. And while there’s still plenty to debate about the impact that MOOCs will have on higher education (as well as for K-12 and lifelong learners), this does feel like the most important trend of the year. Oh the irony, this post on MOOCs is pretty massive itself, and I don't feel like I've really covered all the news and analysis adequately. But as MOOCs are the topic I've blogged most about this year, I do feel like I've said more than enough already. [...]

6 TED Talks on The Pluses of Gaming


TED resources  Med kharbach
Gaming has become a major source of concern for some parents. They are worried about the amount of time their kids spend in front of their screens shooting zombies,or playing Nintendo. I do share the same concern with those parents and I do emphasize on parental intervention to mitigate the gravity of this phenomenon.

TEACHERS EASY GUIDE ON HOW TO EVALUATE WEB CONTENT FOR CLASSROOM INCLUSION

"As our students grow dependant on Internet being a primary source for their information, it becomes of urgent necessity that we, as teachers and educators, should know how to evaluate web content and decipher credible resources from spam and irrelevant ones. Regrettably enough, some of the teachers who are using technology in their instruction still don't come to grips with the mechanisms used to sift through internet content. There is a crude analogy to this situation . A teacher who does not evaluate the web content he shares with his students is like a person driving a car without having a driver license, he can still drive his car but he does not know the real dangers he is putting himself to in doing so."

THE .SEVEN LEARNING STYLES TEACHERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF

"Diversity is the spice of life and for us in education it is also the spice of learning. As learners, we have different learning styles . Some learn more when information is presented visually, others learn through movement and hands-on activities. Of course you can see this difference in your class, but the successful teacher is the one who can identifies all the learning styles of his/her students and tend to each one of them. It is unfortunate to see some students lagging behind simply because their teachers did not meet their learning styles."

What’s Missing From All of This

 

In my view, there are two elements that are still missing from both of these visions. The first is a sustainability model. The MOOC-as-platform idea seems to assume that schools will know how to bring open education courses online and make them work from mission and funding perspectives. What are these things for? How do they align with university missions? How will they be paid for? We are seeing a gold rush right now, and we know how gold rushes tend to end. (Remember Fathom, anybody?) As Instructure correctly points out, there are many different flavors of open education. In order for schools to take on online education in general and open ed in particular in a valuable and sustainable way, they need to have a clear understanding of why they are doing it and how different approaches align (or don’t) with the school’s mission and strategic goals. In this regard, if you haven’t read Phil Hill’s recent EDUCAUSE article yet, you should. He does a great job of beginning to lay out the landscape.

 

Second, the biggest missing piece from both models is…you know…teaching. While the cMOOCs are doing some interesting experimentation in pedagogy, I see little innovation in either course design or platform affordances in the xMOOCs. Udacity’s big invention was multiple-choice quizzes built into videos. Coursera has messed around with peer review, but because they don’t actually work with faculty on course designs, it’s not clear that it’s being used effectively by anyone. For starters, designing effective rubrics is hard. If that step isn’t done right, then peer review falls down. Overall, while the xMOOCs may make noises about disruptive innovation, from a pedagogical perspective, they don’t fundamentally change the lecture-and-quiz model of the traditional classroom. And if we know that model doesn’t work particularly well for a class of 150 students, what makes us think it will work better for a class of 15,000?

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

"Digital learning and recent trends in Open Educational Resources (OER) are enabling fundamental changes in the education world, expanding the educational offer beyond its traditional formats and borders. New ways of learning, characterised by personalisation, engagement, use of digital media, collaboration, bottom-up practices and where the learner or teacher is a creator of learning content are emerging, facilitated by the exponential growth in OER available via the internet. Europe should exploit the potential of OER much more than is currently the case. This requires good computer skills, but some Member States are still lagging behind as seen in the Education and Training Monitor 2012, with 9 Member States with over 50% of 16-74 year olds with no or low computer skills. While the use of ICT in education and training has been high on the policy agenda, critical elements are not in place to enable digital learning and OER to be mainstreamed across all education and training sectors. A coherent strategy at EU level could address the scope, size and complexity of the challenges in support of actions of the Member States and the entire chain of stakeholders."
